IT'S BASICALLY JUST A MATTER...:

Jeb Is Christie's Problem, Not the Cowboys (Jonathan S. Tobin, 01.05.2015 , Commentary)

[B]y coming in so early, Bush has pre-empted Christie in a way that has to have his backers feeling nervous. The push for Bush has also quieted all talk about Mitt Romney running again because of his lack of faith in any of the establishment choices. With Christie handicapped to some extent in his fundraising efforts by New Jersey's strict pay-to-play laws, the longer he refrains from matching Bush's commitment to running, the harder it will be for him to rally enough backing to make an effort worthwhile. Indeed, if Bush's moves are countered before long by similar efforts by Christie, the governor may discover he has waited too long especially since the moderate Republicans both seek to represent understand all too well that a knockdown drag-out fight between the two could make it much easier for a conservative they think can't win a general election, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, to be nominated.

...of whether Jeb can polish off the Rightwing alternative in NH or whether he has to wait until February..
